The Sunday Post

This is is Meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and here are the rules.

It is your chance to re-cap your bookish week, what did your review last week, any new purchases, what will be coming up in your blog next week or generally anything you feel you would like to share with the blogging community.

So, what did I do last week?

As always, busy week at work… but hey, that's life I suppose. I have to be grateful that I do have a job, and even though stressful, not a bad one I guess.

Last Sunday the weather was beautiful here with temperature in the low 80's. My sons managed to repair our shed. Amazing, I had been nagging them for weeks and than it was only a two-hour job and all was done. We cleaned out the yard and I treated them to a spontaneous BBQ which was just the perfect end to a lovely day. It's not often any more that we all do things together.

This weekend, it's a long weekend here in England (Bank Holiday weekend), and I kind of hope that I can use Monday to pre-write some posts for the blog. Weather is not very nice, has been raining continuously, so can't sit outside unfortunately :( 

On the blog last week

This week: Top Ten Tuesday Freebie! Pick your own topic!

Feature and Follow hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read: this week's question: How important is good writing to you? In an ideal world, a book would be beautifully written AND have great character development, plot, etc. But in the real world, which do you prefer: (1) Great characters and plot with lousy writing or (2) Middling character development and plot but gorgeous writing?

Have a great week everyone and Happy reading
